Our first pc was a 2007 2700, and it had the fresh water valve on the passenger side outside wall.  The main reason they removed it from the outside was it being knocked off or damaged.  I had to replace mine because of sun damage to the plastic.  I prefer the bottom drain.  You can use the outside shower to fill the dog's dish.  I cut the end off an old garden hose that slides on the drain valve to drain the tank away from the pc.

What would be worse is having to pay for the replacement of those tires that had only 5,000 miles...

You do have to go to SD and spend one night in a campground (receipt required showing campground address) to get drivers license, but it only takes about 15 minutes to get it.  Everything else can be handled via a mail forwarding service.  We use Americas Mailbox out of Box Elder (Rapid City area).  Their website has information on all your questions.  Since you already paid tax on your PC, you won't have to pay anything else to SD.  We chose Rapid City because the other parts of SD have a wheel tax.  There are several mail forwarding services in SD.  Americas Mailbox has 3 levels of service depending on what you want forwarded.  Their fees are shown on their website.  Can't remember the exact amount, but the initial registration/title on our PC new was in the mid $900s which included sales tax.  Renewal this year was in the upper $90s.  Drivers license was $15 and good for 5 years.  Rapid City is in the Black Hills, so there's a lot to see in the area.

Since we're full-time, we get to choose our residence state.  We selected South Dakota for various reasons, but one was the ease and low cost of registration/title.  There's no inspection, and our mail forwarding service handles all the paper work for a very reasonable fee (renewals can be made on-line directly by me).  Texas is similar except they require annual safety inspections.

For some strange reason, PCs are also considered class B--not C.

I believe there is a breaker on the generator.  I will check my manual, and report back.

The lights are sealed with caulk.  A putty knife and light pressure moving around the light will loosen it.

Bruce, what you're experiencing is exactly what happened with my previous pc.  For me, the problem was corrected by disconnecting, reconnecting and taping the cable connection at the rear of the pc (someone else on this forum suggested I do that).  The camera cable connects to a longer cable in the empty space inside the back of the pc.  I unscrewed the top tail light below the camera, and pulled the cable up until the connection appeared.  There's plenty of slack in the cable to do this.  Once I did that, the camera/monitor worked perfectly.

Just a last straw thought--could the noise be caused by the tires being out of round?  Tires are not truly round, and sometimes on cars they cause vibrations until they are trued up or replaced..??

The cable I mentioned connects to the camera in the cavity in the back of the PC.  The camera has a short cable that connects to a longer cable that goes down the back, under the bottom and up to the monitor.  The slack in this cable can be pulled up by removing the light where the cable enters the back of the PC.

I had this problem on my first PC.  Someone on this forum advised me to pull the cable from the back of the PC and check the connection to the cable going to the front.  I pulled the cable by removing one of the top lights, unhooked/reconnected the two cables, taped them to make sure the connection was tight and stayed tight, and the monitor worked perfectly thereafter.

You're right, Ron--as we've said over and over on this forum, the PC after sale service is almost beyond belief.  When I drove into the factory unannounced with the noise in my 2350 cap, they immediately started working on finding the problem and fixing it.  It took several hours and 2 people working non-stop until they did get it fixed.  When I tell people about this experience, they're amazed I didn't have to make an appointment and wait several days to get it fixed.

We bought an inductive stovetop from Camping World when they were on sale, and our experience with it has been great.  Wife's only comment was why didn't we get one sooner.  We use it inside the PC and outside when camping.  Just remember you can't use pots that magnets don't stick to (or to which magnets don't stick in case my old English teacher reads this).

The popping of the left arm when being extended is normal.  I was told it's because the PC side is curved and the awning is built for a flat surface.

Yes, my 2350 was only a few months old when the noise started.  The noise was actually a creaking noise--the rubbing of the cap against the metal cab.  THe repair job lasted the next 2 years I had the PC, so they did a good job fixing it.
